How long has it been since I’ve been back from Hawaii? It’s been over a month. A MONTH!! HOLY SHIT people. I’ve made you wait way too long.

This post is being broken up into two parts. This one covers the photos with captions. I also have a fun little video I’ve put together of me at the beach, which I will post soon.

So without further delays, here’s a photo summary of my trip to Hawaii.
